Linn Karik/Numerik

Nakamichi CR-7E

Linn DS

AMPS

Leak Stereo 20

Nad 3020

Celestion SL6. First metal tweeter.

I never knew that the SL6's were introduced before 1962 when Bozak introduced their aluminium B-200Y tweeters.

Maybe I should have said in GB, with speakers that were mainstream and affordable.
